    NAIAS: Cadillac ELR wins Eyes on Design award

    Cadillac ELR, Nissan Resonance and Ford Atlas win Eyes on Design awards
    Autoblog
    January 18, 2013
    by John Neff


    This year's annual Eyes on Design awards were presented at the end of press days for the Detroit Auto Show on Tuesday. Given out for the best production and concept car designs that debuted at the show, and voted on by an esteemed panel of actual car designers, this year's award for best production vehicle design went to the 2014 Cadillac ELR.

    The Eyes on Design organization also presented a new honor this year called the Catalyst Award to Bob Lutz, former Vice Chairman of General Motors. Lutz is reported to have given a defense of design in his acceptance speech, arguing that advancements in quality across the industry as a whole have made good design a key differentiator for buyers.

    The General at it's best I love it! We here at GMI are critical because we know GM can do better and we expect them to do better.

    I don't get the Ford. It looks nice, but basicly a normal looking truck with a few show car do-dads.

    Not only is the ELR a production car, but it is true eye candy with a very unique, never seen it before style.

    As for the Nissan - looks cool, but not in the unique way of the Caddy.

    It's also interesting that the MKC wasn't mentioned.

    Ford has had better marketing than GM and this only a residual flow of it. It's not that they are more deserving. It's just a perception of the consumers. Until GM gets rid of the Government Motors, GM will have this problem.

    I think the MKC looks nice, but other than the grill I don't see anything visually outstanding about the MKC. I was flipping back between the Honda Urban concept and the MKC and was struck by the similarities. Again, I think the MKC looks really nice, but not unique. I like the MKC for Lincoln because it looks like it will attract someone in their 40's vs someone in their 70's.

    Guys we are all GM fans but quit hating on the Ford Atlas. It looks better than the GM twins (IMO). Deal with it.

    I don't think anyone is "hating on" the Ford, but this is a design award. What about the Atlas is award worthy? I think it is a nice design, very masculine, but is there anything about it that says breakthrough? Not really.

    Plus this award isn't titled "award for better design than GM". I don't think GM's new truck deserves this award either.

    I disagree. Deal with it.
